The LG V60 is one of LG’s top new products that are being released into the market. It brings something new to the line of next generation flagship phones with an optional dual screen accessory giving its user the luxury of using the phone with two screens. The phone is beautifully designed. It is thin and comes in classic white and classic blue colors with slight accents and dwarfs last year’s V50 with its increased size.
This device features a 6.8-inch HD AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes) display. AMOLED displays often provide an exceptional viewing experience with a semiconducting film behind the OLED panel (a specific type of thin-film-display technology) which allows it to activate each pixel at a very fast speed. The phone’s full HD resolution offers a display of 2,460 by 1,080 pixels at 395ppi (pixels per inch). The brightness is 500 nit (nit is the unit of measurement used to measure brightness) and the aspect ratio is 20.5:9. Aspect ratio is telling the height of the phone when compared to the width as a ratio. There is an in-screen fingerprint reader included as well.
The battery is a Quick charge 4.0+ non removable battery. Quick Charge announced that the 4.0 version can power a phone for up to 5 hours after a 5-minute charge offering plenty of efficiency with lots of battery life for just a short charging time. The charging of this phone is wireless although it can also be accommodated by a Type-C USB charger. As for the battery’s energy capacity, it is capable of holding up to 5000mAh (milli amps hour) and this can last you up to a day and a half with moderate use.
Even when carrying out the most power intensive of activities on the phone it can last you hours at a time before it needs to charge and with a fast charging speed of 25W it will not be charging for long. This makes for a very efficient phone no matter the user or how power intensive their tasks on the device can be.
The internal storage goes up to 128 Gigabytes. This is more than enough for the average phone user but the limits can be pushed greatly as this device has a Micro SD card slot which is capable of holding cards with up to 2 Terabytes of space. This next generation level of storage capacity can allow users to host hundreds of applications on their device without having to worry about storage.
The front camera offers a 10MP(Megapixel) sensor with an f /1.9 aperture (controls the brightness the image that passes through the lens and is projected onto on the image sensor.), 1.22 micrometer pixels and a 72.5-degree field of view while the back camera has a 64MP Sensor, f/1.8 Aperture, 8 micrometer pixels and a 78-degree field of view. When you record, you will experience an 8k recording experience (very high quality recording) at 7,680 x 4,320 resolution.
RAM and Processing
This phone has 8 Gigabytes of RAM to offer great processing speed along with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Core processor. Snapdragon chips offer some of the fastest mobile processing chips in the industry and they are sure not to let you down with the Snapdragon 865. This is fifth gen Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence and allows the devices to be more intelligent and efficient than ever before.
With the LG V60’s 5G connectivity there is wide range, fast and secure connection to any mobile network so no need to worry about that. As for other necessary connection, the Wi-Fi feature uses version 6 and the Bluetooth is 5.1.
For listening to audio there is a 3.5mm headphone jack with 4 QUAD DAC (Digital to Analog Converters). DAC is a chip that takes audio streams and turns them into the electrical signals that power the headphones. Along with this feature, there are 4 microphones and an LG 3D Sound Engine which uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to optimize audio playback by changing settings based on the content that is being listened to whether it is music, news, a movie, a sports match, etc. This provides the user with some loud, good quality sound which works well with whatever type of media being viewed.
Dual Screen features
If you do add the Dual screen feature to your device, you will receive all the wonderful display features of the regular screen such as the 2,460 by 1,080 screen display. This dual screen allows you to do two tasks at the same time like checking your news fee while looking something up on Google and you won’t have to leave your news feed application. The multitasking ability is what makes the dual screen feature so viable. When buying this phone, please do consider adding the feature as an accessory.
The main carriers of this phone are AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile stores though it only supports sub-6GHz and AT&T and T-Mobile. Each of the package deals includes the dual screen option as a cool addition and useful tool.
